Resolution NW (RNW) is now accepting applications for their 2013-14 volunteer cohorts!
The Community Facilitation Program
The Facilitation Program at Resolutions Northwest designs and leads problem-solving meetings, public forums, strategic planning retreats, group mediations, multi-stakeholder negotiations, and dialogues about challenging issues. Volunteers assist with cases according to their interest and availability, which might include anything from observing to small-group facilitation to co-leading an entire process.
What you’d get:
- A 2½ day facilitation training, which is free in exchange for your volunteer commitment.
- Regular volunteer gatherings – expanded this year to include more skill-building and more chances to get to know the other volunteers.
- Volunteer facilitation opportunities to put your skills into action.
- Support and mentorship to focus on where you want to grow as a facilitator.
For more information or to apply, please see the RNW website. The application deadline is October 22, 2013.
The Neighborhood Mediation Program
RNW’S Neighborhood Mediation Program is recruiting applicants that reflect Portland’s diversity for a limited number of spots in our annual volunteer mediation training and mentor program. The comprehensive, 34 hour training and year-long mentor program is designed for people who are dedicated to helping neighbors and communities have challenging discussions and find mutually acceptable solutions together. If you are called to serve your community and/or neighborhood by offering your time, talent, and heart-centered presence during times of conflict, then we hope you will consider applying.
Application deadline: November 24, 2013.
